Pegg’s praise for brave Cruise

Cruise impressed his critics when he was pictured earlier this month (Nov10) dangling from the top of the world’s tallest building during a daring sequence for the fourth installment of the action franchise.

Pegg, who has a role in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, was onset for the shoot at the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai – and he was full of admiration for Cruise’s bravery.

The Top Gun star dangled in a harness more than 2,717 feet (828 metres) in the air, and ran around the outside circumference of the building for a chase scene.

Pegg tells U.K. TV show Loose Women, “I was there watching him doing it, which was terrifying, because it was like being in a plane. (It was at the) top of the building. It’s extraordinary, and he has no fear. He just looked out and looked back in with a big smile on his face, like, ‘Here we go!’. And he was running round the side.”
